This place is fantastic. After a long hot day doing the church and museum scene in Florence to return here for a swim and a relax was wonderful. The hosts, Jennifer and Francesco are we're caring and obliging . We felt we were part of the family. They have excellent local knowledge, we did a Chianti wine trip and had...

Stayed at the residence for a week of glorious Tuscan expereince. Apartment great - all facilites provided, and full kitchen a real bonus. Five min walk to supermarket - and the bus to Florence which takes 25 mins to get to the main railway station - no hassle, no parking wories! Tavarnuzze has a market on Wednesday mornings which is...

Just back from staying at the wonderful Rocca del Palazzaccio (run by husband/wife team Francesco and Jennifer) in apartment number 7. We had researched carefully what we wanted from our accommodation in Florence, and were encouraged by very positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Important to us were (1) good quality accommodation with an outside pool and sunbathing area; (2) a spacious,...

We stayed here for three nights with our two small children (ages 1 and 3) and our dog (medium sized labrador retriever). It worked out perfectly! It was nice to be a little bit outside of the city and have parking on the premise as anyone with small kids will surely appreciate. On the grounds of the residence there is...

Jennifer and Francesco run this place like champs! This place is right on the outskirts of Florence, and the bus that takes you right into the heart of Florence (Duomo, Academia, Offitzi) leaves right down the street, next to a little grocery store that you can shop for your week's light fare and food stuffs. For day trips to Pisa,...

Very good location (15min from Firenze, great to stay here and visit all sights daily), and impressive atmosphere of sense Toscana. We had a small appt for 2 pers (No8). Great private terrace, comfortable kitchen, wonderful dining room for price of standard hotel double room.

We were looking for comfort and convenience in order to explore the city of Florence and the Tuscany region, with a level of independence that can only be achieved through self-catering. The descriptions and photos on the search engines, and the Residences own web site, appeared to meet our needs and the price was very reasonable. However all our expectations...

“Had a look at other apartments and they all look good - a great selection to choose from delending on your group(s) and requirements”
 of 5 bubbles SueL223, 7 Jun 2013 | Read review
“Apartment 7 is upstairs, so there is a flight of stairs. It was large and airy. Open plan living/ dining/kitchen, which everything needed. Large bedroom with loads of storage; large double bed, bunk beds, convertible sofa bed in living room. Bathroom with large modern sink, mirror above, bidet, toilet, shower cubicle. Good light, and loved the window arrangement with mesh panels to keep out mosquitos but double glazed window panes and wooden shutters which lock over that.”
